Scenic - Rose water

In the weeks before and after the autumnal equinox, the amount of daylight one experiences in the Arctic is similar to that in temperature latitudes. Unlike last year, when the sun was our constant companion, this year we had night. I never missed a sunrise or sunset, although the clouds usually obscured the sun. In this case, the morning sun had just crested the horizon and colored the water an amazing shade of rosy orange. This abstract image shows the sunlight reflected off the wavelets.
